Report: Bayern Munich will listen to offers for Corentin Tolisso

New, comments

Corentin Tolisso has had an injury-plagues career with Bayern Munich, so a change of scenery could be in line for both parties.

Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso is back working with the ball in training, which is a great sign for the Frenchman. While his immediate future on Säbener Straße is on the up-tick, his long-term prospects are more cloudy. According to a report from German magazine kicker, Bayern Munich is willing to listen to offers for the 26-year-old 2018 World Cup winner.

Tolisso’s last two seasons with the club have been marred by injuries and a lack of consistency. Perhaps a change of scenery — and a chance to consistently start — will help Tolisso get his career back on track.

Tolisso offers dynamic ability in the midfield, but it would be hard to say that he has fully recovered from his knee injury that occurred in September of 2018. Since that point, Tolisso has not been as explosive as his pre-injury form:

In the current season he has made 20 competitive appearances (two goals). It is unclear how things will continue for him in the new season. Those responsible for Bavaria would listen to an offer for Tolisso, whose contract expires in 2022.

Tolisso has also suffered eight different injuries since the time of his ACL tear, which have totaled 402 days of missed field time and 75 games to date. Still a valuable depth piece to Bayern Munich, Tolisso might have the urge to be with a club that could offer him a starting position as opposed to his current substitute role with the Bavarians.

West Ham United, Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all recently been linked to Tolisso, so the player will not have a lack of suitors should he decide that he wants to move on.
